Emotion research has become a mature branch of psychology, with its own standardized measures, induction procedures, data-analysis challenges, and sub-disciplines. During the last decade, a number of books addressing major questions in the study of emotion have been published in response to arapidly increasing demand that has been fueled by an increasing number of psychologists whose research either focus on or involve the study of emotion. Very few of these books, however, have presented an explicit discussion of the tools for conducting research, despite the facts that the study ofemotion frequently requires highly specialized procedures, instruments, and coding strategies, and that the field has reached a place where a large number of excellent elicitation procedures and assessment instruments have been developed and validated. Emotion Elicitation and Assessment correctsthis oversight in the literature by organizing and detailing all the major approaches and instruments for the study of emotion. It is the most complete reference for methods and resources in the field, and will serve as a pragmatic resource for emotion researchers by providing easy access to a hostof scales, stimuli, coding systems, assessment tools, and innovative methodologies. This handbook will help to advance research in emotion by encouraging researchers to take greater advantage of standard and well-researched approaches, which will increase both the productivity in the field and thespeed and accuracy with which research can be communicated.
James A. Coan is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville.

Editorial Reviews

"The scientific investigation of emotion requires that emotions be controlled experimentally and measured comparably across time, contexts, and laboratories. These dual requirements have proven difficult to fulfill despite concerted efforts for decades to do so. Progress has been slowed bythe absence of a thorough treatment of available methods and measures. By directly addressing these dual problems in a comprehensive volume, the Handbook of Emotion Elicitation and Assessment is destined to become a landmark contribution to the scientific study of emotion." --John T. Cacioppo,Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago
